About the Movie

Ben Stiller, Winona Ryder, Ethan Hawke, Janeane Garofalo and Steve Zahn star in this smart, insightful and hilarious comedy that looks at life, love and the pursuit of gainful employment. This irreverent look at the harsh realities of life after college captures the misadventures of Lelaina (Ryder), an aspiring TV production assistant, and her relationships with her sarcastic roommate, Vickie (Garofalo), friends Sammy (Zahn) and Troy (Hawke) and an ambitious video executive, Michael (Stiller). This is truly a comedic and cultural touchstone that encapsulates an era like no other.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Like the generation it presents so appealingly, it doesn't see any point in getting all bent out of shape and overambitious. But it knows how to hang out and have a great time. – Caryn James, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Yearning, hilarious, lost within their precocious self-awareness, these slackers have soul. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Mar 27, 2013

Fresh: Although it never became the definitive document of Generation X, Reality Bites is a touchstone for anyone just out of college and stuck with more ideals than job prospects, not to mention a head full of bad-TV trivia. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, May 9, 2008

Rotten: Reality Bites begins as a promising and eccentric tale of contemporary youth but evolves into a banal love story as predictable as any lush Hollywood affair. – Leonard Klady, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Honest Real Movie

I love this movie. I'm 21 and the story
still rings true for today. The characters, and story are wonderfully written. All the actors do a great job in portraying the fun, difficult, confusing, and surprising life of a young adult. Love it
